As far as I know, pkg.freebsd.org does not yet serve binary packages for
architectures other than i386 and amd64, however there are plans for armv6
and mips.

Thanks to the multi-repository support of pkg(8), anybody can build (via
poudriere [1]) and host pkg(8) repositories [2].  Packages for armv6 may
be even cross-built [3] on x86 with poudriere.
